The First Tilling of the Year

Today was one of the "landmark" days on my annual gardening calendar. Today we were finally able to give the big garden its first tilling of the year. It is always interesting to look back and compare when we are able to accomplish this task each year. Last year in 2011, with all of the record rainfall, we weren't able to till until June 15th - a full month + one day later than this year! But in 2010, I recorded that we had the first tilling on May 14th - the exact same day as this year.
